1983 world champion Keith Deller has been awarded an MBE (Member of the British Empire) in the New Year’s Honours, it was announced last night.

Deller, who joins his contemporaries Eric Bristow and John Lowe with the honour, has received it for charitable services to the community.

The 64-year-old’s involvement in charity has spanned several decades, beginning even before his famous 1983 win. But recent years have notably seen him raise £500,000 for Macmillan Cancer Charity.

Speaking on X/Twitter about the honour, Deller said: “I just want to say a big thank you for all your messages of congratulations. I’m lost for words to wake up to the news I have been awarded an MBE.”

“Through my career as a Professional Darts Player, I’ve been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with charities close to my heart that need our help the most. I look forward to continuing to support these charities for many more years to come.”

Deller is one of several sports stars, including Rob Burrow and Lauren Hemp, to receive the accolade from His Majesty the King.
